    If you cant say anything good.......................

    Is it me or are too many people on here just looking for an excuse to make negative comments?
    I am a firm believer in the old saying "If you cant say anything good then don't say anything at all". It seems all too often that people find hot (and not so hot) deals only to have em rubbished by negative comments. OK- I'm all for a bit of fun, but it seems that if it aint what they want then some people(and I'm not naming names) can be downright rude in their comments. This is a community based on the goodwill of passing on "hot" deals, but it seems that there are too many just watching the postings in the hope of the chance to submit a sarcastic comment or two. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit!
    Sorry but it makes me MAD! I hate rudeness! There aint any need for it.
    Here endeth the sermon............(I feel better now cus I have had a rant!)

    Its just that if people go to the trouble of sharing their finds then people should either take it or leave it- no need to be 'orrible!:roll:

    Glad that you got that off your chest!! Yes, I mainly agree wtih you, but to be fair there is also a lot of hysterical reaction to perfectly ordinary and approriate comments. All part of the same problem, I suppose.

    This is raised a lot. The most recent that I've noticed:

    Yup-Its probably cus the written word can seem harsh in comparison to 'real' speech, but the emoticons are there to use to take the sting out of a negative comment.

    Didn't need to ask - already checked ;-)

    - a stategy with which I also concur :thumbsup:.

    Voted cold.

    "Let him who believes in God and the Last Day either speak good or keep … "Let him who believes in God and the Last Day either speak good or keep silent''

    In the words of Jeremy Bentham...this is all "Nonsense on stilts"

    All well and good if we all shared the same thought processes but what may be negative to some could be constructive to others.

    I'm more for freedom of speech myself but do think that people who vote cold should say why, too many things are going cold because people don't like the product rather than its value as a deal.

    What I meant was that a negative comment needn't be made rudely or sarcastically. I agree with the comment about freedom of speech but theres a right way and a wrong way to express yourself. Manners dont cost anything.:friends:

    See I don't think of sarcasm as rude. Thats probably why I get into so much trouble though LOL.

    agree with OP.... its not nice esp for the newbibies......

    Thank you Magicbeans:roll:

    I agree with the OP - there is a LOT of harsh comments on here (talking deals) and it can put people off posting. I know I've thought twice about it, on several different occassions because you never know what sort of reception your post is going to get! Nobody, hardly ever, explains why they have voted cold. By all means criticise the deal but not the person that has posted the deal! Comments always seem to get very personal.

    I've finished my rant now, and I've just got one more thing to say "Leave my big sister alone!". For those of you who don't know, Murie is my sister and her avatar is her lovely dog Pippa.

    Maybe I've never had it as bad as others, this is the most abuse I've ever taken for posting a deal ...

    ... wouldn't say it was anything major though, looking back I wish I'd taken their advice ha ha.

    The one's I don't like are when people who can't find fault with the deal but start correcting grammar, spelling and technical knowledge - I say MOVE ON!:viking:
